Is it just imposible to make this, too expensive? :confused: Or will they quietly release it like they did with the 32 Gig last year....no major announcements, just listed on the site?

Hmmmmm

It is more than likely too expensive to make. 64GB drives are still over $200 when adding to notebooks. That is one of the reasons why Creative never made a 64GB Zen X-fi as it would have drastically increased the costs of their player.

The 32GB iPod touch was $500 when it was initially released. Apple quickly found out that a price point at that level is just too high. People could go out and purchase decent notebooks for $500, netbooks for $300, and so on.

Yes, but only a portion of that $200 is due to material costs. The differential material cost between 32 and 64GB is much less. I suspect that we'll see the iPhone/Touch capacities ratchet up a notch in the coming months with little or no price increase, and 8GB models either discontinued or see a price reduction. Apple could very well use such a plan as its own "stimulus package" to sustain sales in these difficult times.
